Beyond The Box Set

265 EpisodesProduced by Harry Chappell & John LucasWebsite

At Beyond The Box Set, we believe every great movie deserves a questionable sequel. Each week, we take a stand-alone cinema classic and compete to come up with the best, worst and most bizarre pitches to bring them back to the big screen.

Adaptation 2: Ideation

The twisted headspace of Charlie Kauffman and Spike Jonze is our destination for this week, as we look back on the brilliant meta-comedy Adaptation, featuring a remarkably restrained dual performance from Nicholas Cage.

Tune in to hear our thoughts on sibling rivalry, the joy of trippy Meryl, the crocodile moment and much more, plus drinking games, listener reviews and our fantasy sequel pitches!


Here at Beyond the Box Set, we're putting a creative twist on the movie podcast format. Each week, we watch a classic standalone movie and compete to pitch the most ridiculous sequels, prequels and spin-offs to bring them back to the big screen. It may not be perfection, but it's a lot of fun - and we might even change the way you look at your favourite movie!
